Josh Coley has expressed his delight at becoming a Grecian as he put pen to paper on a two-year deal.
"I'm really happy to be here and get the deal sorted," Coley said on day one in red and white as he spoke of the easy decision to join the club.
"I was made aware of the club's interest in around March time so when I came back in [to the Maidenhead squad] I had to get my performances up.
"I had a Zoom call with Matt and it was pretty clear the way things were going, and it my choice was made from there. It was really easy for me because this is a great club. It's a great opportunity to express myself here.
"The way the manager has been since our first conversation, I knew this was right for me."
Coley describes himself a player who "more of a provider than a goalscorer," backed up by the stats of five goals and seven assists at Maidenhead last season.
"I love to get crosses in the box and use my pace. I know how to use my body well to win free kicks and that is something I've developed in my game.
"I started 22 odd games last season and it was the first time I'd really played week in week out so for me five goals and seven assists is a good stepping stone for me.
"I'm really really excited for league football. Knowing the fan base at this club, it's a great place to come and play in front of supporters," he added.
Josh will become this season's 1931 Fund player, joining a list of names such as Jack Sparkes, Jordan Dyer, Pierce Sweeney and James Norwood, and Coley has spoke of the honour to be given the prestigious shirt.
"Coming to a club like this and being given a shirt with this background. It's a real honour to wear the number and hopefully I can show the fans everything in my time here."
